In the current context of extensive international integration and exchange, the Vietnamese music and theater market is becoming more and more exciting with significant achievements. It is expected to become a potential sector and developing strength in the future.
However, the development of a sector always comes with challenges and opportunities. One of the tough challenges in developing this sector is issues relating to intellectual property rights. Intellectual property rights in music and theater may include matters relating to the following:
- Copyright for the song/music;
- Rights related to copyright in performances, phonograms, video recordings, broadcasts;
- Ownership of the singer’s image with the management company; and
- The relationship between authors, copyright holders, music production companies and intermediary service enterprises.
